  1. I found some boxes run Android at one core only, even the CPU has four cores. That could explain why it can maintain the CPU temp at an acceptable level. Sent from my M2007J3SG using Tapatalk
  2. Did you get wifi working on this box?
  3. I follow the method here: My box can now see the wifi, but there are a few quirks: 1. It sees only some of the 5Ghz band. For example, it can't see my own 5Ghz AP, but can see my neighborhood 5G APs 2. when connected with either 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz band, and I did the speed test. It is fine with the download speed, but the upload speed is just less than 1Mbps, always. Thus, the connection is virtually useless, e.g. I can vnc to it, but it shows black screen because the screen can't be uploaded to my vnc client due to the upload speed problem. Is there any work around?

  4. I found this box running Armbian at much cooler temperature than H603. Running around 40+-70c depending on ambient temperature and cpu load. The cpu never throttle. TV Box Name X96 mini CPU amlogic S905X Armbian build file name: Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_focal_current_5.9.0_desktop.img DTB file used: meson-gxl-s905x-p212.dtb Kernel Version: 5.9.0 Distribution Installed (focal, buster, etc): focal Working Ethernet (Yes/No): yes Max Ethernet Speed that works (100/1000): 100 Does wifi work (Yes/No): No after boot. But managed to compile from source (RTL8189ES) and now it is working (see attaching working 8189es.ko) Does bluetooth work (Yes/No): no Does HDMI audio work (Yes/No): didn't test Additional Comments (provide any additional information you feel is important): to make the wifi works, using the attached .ko file: # Enable the driver sudo cp 8189es.ko /usr/lib/modules/5.9.0-arm-64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek/ sudo depmod -a sudo modprobe 8189es In case you want to compile by yourself: # Install kernel headers wget https://users.armbian.com/balbes150/arm-64/deb/linux-headers-current-arm-64_20.10_arm64.deb or download from https://disk.yandex.ru/d/_rQgn_FosYuW0g/20.10/deb sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-current-arm-64_20.10_arm64.deb # Download the wifi driver git clone https://github.com/jwrdegoede/rtl8189ES_linux.git # Compile, cd rtl8189ES_linux/ make -j4 ARCH=arm64 KSRC=/usr/lib/modules/5.9.0-arm-64/build # Enable the driver sudo cp 8189es.ko /usr/lib/modules/5.9.0-arm-64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek/ sudo depmod -a sudo modprobe 8189es 8189es.ko
  5. My X96 mini, S905X,2/16GB, runs fine with Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_focal_current_5.9.0_desktop.img The box also runs at low CPU temperature, even I run stress test for 5 minutes, the cpu never throttle. Unfortunately, wifi is not working, but a cheap usb wifi works (MT7601U wifi chip). update: I managed to compile a driver for the internal wifi chipset and now the internal wifi works.

  6. Armbian by default boots up with user auto login. However, after sudo apt upgrade, I lost the auto login and have to enter password at every boot up. ( Armbian_21.08.0-trunk_Aw-h6-tv_focal_current_5.10.53_xfce_desktop.img) For those who are interested, this is the solution I made to make it auto login again. edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/10-slick-greeter.conf, and add these two commands below autologin-user=yourloginusername autologin-user-timeout=0 save and reboot
  7. Is it possible the CPU governor may have reported temperature higher than the actual values? I found the box chassis temperature is not much hotter than my X96 mini.
  8. Okay. I flashed Armbian_21.08.0-trunk_Aw-h6-tv_focal_current_5.10.53_xfce_desktop.img to my sdcard. The content inside the flashed sdcard can't be viewed by Windows 10, so I just insert the card to my box, and it boots right to Armbian with working wifi. The Wifi AC mode is very fast too. The first boot shows only 2GB ram. Whilst still running Armbian, I amended /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file and change mem=2048 to mem=3072, save, reboot, and now it shows 3GB ram. The X96H is running hot at between 70-90+c (my X96 mini 50-60c). Using armbian-config to change the CPU min/max speed and power saving mode did not help much. I don't know how to decrease the heat. The GUI response time is still great when operating with mouse/keyboard attaching to the box. However, with the x11vnc server running and with my Win 10 VNC viewer, the screen response time is sluggish (it is fast for my Armbian X96 mini (S905x)). How to improve the speed?. XRDP is much worse and unuseable.
  9. Hi, I have X96H 4GB/32GB. Which Armbian (Ubuntu 20.04 or newer) version with working wifi I should use? Can it run from emmc too? Thank you.
  10. I'm trying to compile a wifi driver for RTL8898ES chip on my S905x box which is running Armbian 20.10.1 Focal with Linux 5.9.0-arm-64. I can't get the kernel-headers installed either within the armbian-config menu or all the above apt install commands. It reported it can't find the kernel header files. sudo apt install linux-headers-${BRANCH}-${FAMILY} [sudo] password for bthoven: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package linux-headers- bthoven@bthoven-X96:~$ sudo apt-get install kernel-headers-$(uname -r) Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package kernel-headers-5.9.0-arm-64 E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'kernel-headers-5.9.0-arm-64' E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'kernel-headers-5.9.0-arm-64' Anyone has succeeded doing it lately? Thanks
  11. Thanks a lot. The do-release-upgrade did not work. If I want to have a clean install with newest supported Ubuntu, how should I proceed?
  12. I flash the armbian Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS into the box (2GB/16GB S905X X96 mini) internal emmc long time ago and it is still working without problem. Now I need to upgrade Ubuntu to a newer version (at least 18.04) in order to support some software which requires a newer version of Ubuntu. My question is how can I do the upgrade? Any instruction how to do it in my scenario (armbian already running from internal emmc, not sdcard). Thank you
  13. I've installed Ubuntu to several machine. Following vnc server setup works every time. In terminal mode: Install vnc server sudo apt-get install x11vnc Create password x11vnc -storepasswd Create it as service sudo nano /lib/systemd/system/x11vnc.service, then put following content in the file (note: if you have GUI editor like geany, you may replace the above 'nano' to 'geany' (no quote) [Unit] Description=Start x11vnc at startup. After=multi-user.target [Service] Type=simple ExecStart=/usr/bin/x11vnc -auth guess -forever -loop -noxdamage -repeat -rfbauth /home/yourhome/.vnc/passwd -rfbport 5900 -shared [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target Now back to terminal mode: sudo systemctl daemon-reload sudo systemctl enable x11vnc.service sudo systemctl start x11vnc.service Now reboot your machine and try vnc viewer
  14. It always works with the instruction from below link http://www.wolffhaven45.com/blog/linux/x11vnc-server-installation-ubuntu-16-04-xenial-xerus/
  15. Hi, I have cs918, T-R42 model with 2GB ram and 8GB rom. I created a bootable 8GB class 10 microsd with Linuxian ubuntu image for MK809III. It works with my CS918. Ethernet works, but no wifi. Everything else is working fine.
